Death of AGI Emeritus member, Joan Pettigrew

It is with deep regret that we learned of the peaceful death of our retired Emeritus member, Joan Pettigrew on 11 August 2021 in Co. Down.

Joan was one of the founder members of AGI when it was established in Belfast in 1986 and known then as the Association of Professional Genealogists in Ireland (APGI).

Her family has notified AGI that a Service of Thanksgiving for Joan’s life will take place on Saturday 14 August at 10.00am in St. Paul’s Parish Centre in Lisburn, followed by interment in Drumee Cemetery, Castlewellan, Co. Down.

May she rest in peace.

Joan Sharkey,

Hon. President, AGI.
